Glamping, luxury camping and unique holidays in the UK are about the experience: an unusual place to stay, an open camp fire, a log burner... Take a look around, we're sure you'll find something you'll love.
Do you fancy breathing in the fresh air in Devon or Glastonbury? Wandering in Wales, exploring in Yorkshire, or down south in Sussex? We offer a range of inspiring alternative accommodation throughout the UK.
Imagine this? You have been out exploring the countryside by foot or bike from your quirky glamping abode, chosen by you for its perfect dark sky location. You light the barbecue and start cooking the local produce you had the time to choose in a charming farm shop. Whilst it's heating up, you and your family play a few games…. there is plenty of room around your glamping structure to do this. Life has slowed right down, and you can feel the stress of daily life being replaced by the joy of quality time.
The barbecue is ready, and you take turns cooking on the open coals. The sun is setting, time to light the candles and lamps provided for you. You feast like kings, slowly and all together as dusk turns to night.
Your eyes adjust to the dark night sky above you. Now you choose? Maybe you will head to the private hot tub, slide under the bubbles and stargaze in the warmth of the water. Stargazing and glamping doesn’t get much better than this! Thousands of stars, distant planets, twinkling constellations, and even the sheer sweep of our own galaxy, the Milky Way, can all be seen in areas where light pollution is low.
Many of our abodes have wifi so for those of you taking this stargazing holiday for the first foray into stargazing, we recommend downloading a stargazing app before you leave home. Point to the sky and let the marvel of technology teach you the names of the constellations. Pack a camera with a slow shutter speed to keep memories of the constellations you witness on your stargazing holiday.
Maybe you have your telescope and booked this stargazing glamping holiday to stay in a dark sky location. Set up your telescope and gather with your family for perfect stargazing nights ...don’t forget the hot chocolate and keep the embers going in the fire pit to roast some marshmallows. (Book a stargazing stay in the Breacon Beacons, one of the 16 certified International Dark Sky Reserves in the world)
The sound of a crackling fire under a twinkly sky is the thing of camping dreams. Stargazing glamping holidays add a level of luxury, decadence, and comfort that no standard camping can compete with.
Stay up late, heading off for a deep sleep in a plump, comfortable bed in a yurt, wood cabin, shepherds hut (the choice of stargazing structures we have is vast).
Luckily, we’re spoilt for choice with amazing stargazing holidays throughout the national parks, wild places, and rural countryside of the UK and France. Although we can’t guarantee clear skies, these perfect dark spots are free of light pollution and perfect for glamping under the stars.
Stargazing glamping holidays are arguably even better in the Autumn and Winter. Warm clothes are obligatory but late nights are unnecessary. Book one of our stargazing structures with a see-through roof and you can stay indoors!
Glamping under the stars – great fun to get the kids excited about the natural world and let’s face it, it’s rather romantic for a couple’s glamping getaway too.
We cannot guarantee the sky will be perfect for your stay, that is out of our hands, but we can confirm that a perfect stargazing glamping property is also a perfect place to relax, slow down and be in nature. Increase your odds of seeing the stars and book a stargazing holiday when the moon is at its least visible.
